My Mother Was A Lady Recorded by Marty Robbins Written by E.B Marks Jr. and Joseph Stern [3/4 time]
C Two drummers they were seated in a grand hotel one day F C D7 G7 While dining they were chatting in a sorta joking way C There came a pretty waitress to bring a tray of food F C G7 C They spoke to her familiarly in a manner sort of rude
At first she did not notice nor make the least reply F C G7 C When somethin' that was said to her brought teardrops to her eyes
She turned on her tormentors her cheeks were flaming red F C G7 C Approaching as a picture these are the words she said
G7 My Mother was a lady and yours I would allow C You may have a sister who needs protection now C7 F I've come to this great city to find my brother dear C G7 C You would not dare insult me sir if brother Jack were here
The two sat there in silence their heads hung low in shame F C G7 C Forgive us miss we meant no harm pray tell us what is your name C7 F She told him and he cried aloud I know your brother too C G7 C We've been friends for many many years and he oft' times speaks of you C7 F Come go with me when I go back and if you'll only wed C G7 C I'll take you to him as my bride I've loved you since you said
